Sheriff Bobby McCallum announced recently the addition of Molly, the newest member of the K-9 Unit at the Levy County Sheriff’s Office. The addition of Molly to the unit was made possible through a generous donation of $5,500 made by Barbara Snow on behalf of the U.S. War Dogs Association, Southern Chapter 2. Snow, executive director of the Southern Chapter, is not only a concerned citizen of Levy County, but also an active participant in the Levy County Sheriff’s Office program. She believes the K-9 Unit is an essential component to the safety and wellbeing of the community. She presented the donation to Sheriff McCallum July 28. The sheriff accepted the donation and expressed his sincere appreciation on behalf of the agency and the citizens of Levy County.

Molly has been partnered with Deputy Gary Garboski. The team recently graduated from Narcotics Detection and Interdiction Training with great success. Molly and Deputy Garboski are actively on the roads of Levy County pursuing those who choose to transport drugs. Several drug arrests have been made by Deputy Garboski due to Molly’s successful identification of the presence of narcotics during recent traffic stops. Molly’s addition to the LCSO augments the already active K-9 Drug Interdiction and Apprehension program.
